Roberts: stick together

13 February 2019

Goalkeeper Liam Roberts has called for togetherness following the Saddlers' 1-0 defeat to AFC Wimbledon.

A solitary Steve Seddon goal gave the division's bottom club victory on a disappointing evening at the Banks's Stadium.

The 24-year-old wants the team to stick together and rediscover the grit they showed at the start of the season, when the Saddlers won four of the opening five matches.

“It’s difficult to take,” admitted Roberts.

“There have been games where we have lost but we have been in control, and we have had spells in games where we should have gone on to win.

"Football is all about luck sometimes. Sometimes you’re lucky, sometimes you’re unlucky and at the moment we aren’t getting lucky.

“It is about staying together now. It’s not about individuals, it’s about everyone sticking together and getting a positive result. It doesn’t matter how we win, it’s just about winning.

“I believe in myself and I still believe in the players in front of me and that is how we are going to get through this.

“I know all the players still believe and I am sure things will change for us. It is all about staying positive and having a clean mindset and getting ready for Saturday.”
